To put you in the holiday spirit (or spirits!), we present some of Darden’s chefs sharing their holiday food and drink tips and ethnic traditions. These gems may keep you from falling into a rut — save that for January when you’re back at the gym and your pantry is oddly without cookies. 
 
1. Olive Garden Chefs Flavio Tagliaferro and Paolo Lafata describe the Italian tradition of the Feast of the Seven Fishes.
 
2. Chefs Michael LaDuke and Keith Hanks of The Capital Grille suggest indulging in the very best food and beverages — and that includes Keith’s special eggnog.
 
3. Bahama Breeze Chef Peter Olsacher shares traditions from his Austrian homeland including goose and mulled wine.
 
4. Olive Garden Chef Jim Nuetzi dines out on Christmas Eve but prepares an elaborate Christmas dinner.
